Can't hear any sound from the large left or right speakers

I recently moved and upon reconnecting my Technics stereo, I can't hear any sound from either the left or right speakers. What could be causing this? I tried new speaker wire but still no sound.

Can you have just 2 channel by hooking up to right & left front speaker posts on 5.1 surround

short If you hook more than one speaker up to a single channel, it will lower the impedence and will damage the amp. You can hook up multiple speakers by using a speaker switch box between the speakers and the amp. This will match the impedence and should keep the amp from blowing.

Check the input cables from the source you are playing at both ends. Sounds like an input problem, not a speaker problem. Twist the RCA connectors as you push them in to make sure the connection is good.

Technics 1310 turntable has left channel (white

There are just two causes, one is the preamp, which can be easily checked by putting the right channel jack in the left terminal. If the sound is normal, then it's likely that the cartridge in the deck is bad, or some wire is loose. However if the sound is still poor then the magnetic cartridge preamp in the amp has a fault. These are normally a single IC, which will have failed. Find the preamp by tracing the wires from the imput socket to the PC board, which may be alone.

Front left and right speakers don't work often. I'll hear a "click" and they'll both come on for a while.

You gotta isolate the problem.  Hook the speakers up to a different stereo to see if you hear sound.  If no sound is heard then you know your speakers are fu.k.d up.  If you hear sound, then reconnect them back to your stereo receiver and make sure the wires are in nice and snug.  Turn the thing on and see what happens when you cycle through the various inputs.  If you get no sound, then you know your receiver is fu.k.d up.  Look for blown fuses and test for bad IC board.  Also vacuum up all the dust inside the unit, cause sometimes over time dust will cause the circuits to not work correctly.  Check around inside to make sure theres no water damage or black smoke on the circuits.

The very FIRST thing to check is to make certain ALL of your speakers have an IMPEDENCE of 8 OHMS. Virtually all speakers of even modest quality will include this specification on a label on the back of the speaker. You CANNOT run more than (2) TWO speakers with 4 OHMs impedence on ANY amplifier (technical discussion too long!) [NOTE: Even though fused, your receiver has internal overload protection systems to prevent permanent damage. However, you cannot re-set these systems yourself. Your dealer or authorized service center must do this.] But, before you take it in for service, there is one more "test": check for shorted and/or mis-connected/disconnected speaker cables/wires. Visually inspect connections at the receiver and speakers first. You might find something obvious! If everything looks okay, then disconnect ALL of the speakers; and reconnect and test them one at a time (at relatively low volume.) For example, reconnect the left front speaker, test the system; THEN add the right front, test the system,and so on, ADDING one more speaker each time - FIRST MAKING SURE EACH OF THEM HAS AN IMPEDENCE OF AT LEAST 8 OHMS! IF there is a short (or bad speaker) this will help isolate it. Hopefully one of these "fixes" will work for you. GOOD LUCK!

Look for lossing solders points or bad conections. Start to look on those components of hi wattage and components to get hot alot, those are the most common to have weak solders spots.
Also some equipment need to be clean because the dust can make problems.
good luk.
